The Country's Priceless Green Jewel


 July 25th, 2018  |  08:40 AM  |   1143 views



With its wealth of flora and fauna, the Temburong District has its own and unique identity as the Green Jewel of Brunei. The land is home to lush tropical rain forest which is an important resource to the country not only for the purpose of research but also as a tourist attraction.


Far away from the busy commercial activities seen in the other three districts, Temburong's established identity is that of the country's most important source of greenery. Brunei Darussalam has big and unspoilt tropical rain forests, the biggest of which is in the Temburong District, hence its title, 'the Green Jewel of Brunei." The largest part of the district's natural beauty is located in the Ulu Temburong National Park. Situated in this park is the Kuala Belalong Research Centre which is under the supervision of Universiti Brunei Darussalam. The centre is important to Temburong District because of its role as a world renowned research centre of tropical rain forest bio-diversity.  The facility was developed as a teaching, learning and training resource for local and foreign schools and educational institutions. The centre also attracts many forestry experts, researchers and nature lovers to conduct their research and studies. From January 2017 until July this year, 30 local researchers from Universiti Brunei Darussalam and 45 others from foreign universities including the Czech Republic, Austria, the United States, Japan, Korea and the United Kingdom have conducted research and studies in the district.
